The decade is over, one that not only brought Star Wars into the House of Mouse but the four-colour adventures in a galaxy far, far away back to Marvel Comics after nearly 30 years. That return resulted in the biggest selling comic of the decade in the form of Star Wars #1, but the main Star Wars title wasn’t the only story in town.
Set after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Jason Aaron and John Cassaday’s Star Wars #1, published in January 2015, relaunched Star Wars comics at Marvel Comics and scored the creators the best-selling comic book of the 2010s.
In total, Marvel Comics had five of the top ten best-selling comic books of the 2010s and 67 of the top 100. 2014’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 from Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos ranked #3 for the decade, followed by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic’s Secret Wars #1 at #4, Slott and Stuart Immonen’s Amazing Spider-Man #800 at #9, and Aaron and Mike Deodato’s Star Wars: Vader Down#1 at #10.
